Bioethics for Neonatal Cardiac Care.
BACKGROUND: Clinicians caring for neonates with congenital heart disease encounter challenges with ethical implications in daily practice and must have some basic fluency in ethical principles and practical applications.
METHODS: Good ethical practice begins with a thorough understanding of the details and narrative of each individual case, examination via classic principles of bioethics, and further framing of that translation into practice.
RESULTS: We explore some of these issues and expand awareness through the lens of a case presentation beginning with fetal considerations through end-of-life discussions.
CONCLUSIONS: We include specific sections that bring attention to shared decision-making, research ethics, and outcomes reporting. We review empirical evidence and highlight recommendations.
